***Long Action with .473 Boltface!!! What caliber should I go with???

Hello Gentlemen and ladies if there are some!!

I need some more of your advise.

If you were to build a gun from a long action with a standard bolt face .473, what caliber would you go with???

Purpose of the gun would be this-

Tac Comp gun
Long range weapon for banging steel
Long range hunting
Paper punching

All you advice and expert opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I'm not familiar with "TAC"....but I'd take a hard look at the .338-06 too if it would work out with your other goals.

The 280 ackley is a great choice, I shoot 180 gr berger bullets and have taken elk at over 700 yrds with no problem.
